This footage from the United States shows a (likely distracted) Volkswagen Jetta driver fail to notice a sudden traffic jam, slamming into a Toyota Tacoma bakkie at high speed.

The clip, which includes footage from both front- and rear-facing cameras, shows the silver sixth-generation Jetta speeding up behind rapidly slowing traffic in Tennessee.

It crunches into the TRD-badged bakkie (with the Toyota landing up on its side after the impact), before thudding into the camera-equipped vehicle.

According to the uploader of the footage, an occupant from the bakkie was admitted to hospital after the crash.
